What are the Unmarried Partner Visa eligibility requirements?
The Unmarried Partner Visa is aimed at long-term partners of British citizens or settled persons who wish to join their partners in the UK.
In order for an Unmarried Partner Visa application to be a success, the following eligibility requirements must first be satisfied:
- Yourself and your partner must be at least 18 years of age;
- You must intend to stay together on a permanent basis;
- Any previous relationships involving yourself and your UK sponsor must have come to an end;
- There must have suitable accommodation arrangements in place for both yourself and your partner;
- You must satisfy the minimum income requirement of £18,600 per year. The threshold increases to £22,400 for those also sponsoring a child, and increases by a further £2,400 for each additional child;
- You must have lived together for a minimum of two years prior to commencing your Unmarried Partner Visa application.
Failing to fulfil these eligibility requirements could result in the outright refusal of your application. With this in mind, it is strongly advised that you seek the help of one of our OISC-accredited lawyers.
